On Tuesday, March 3rd, deputies from the Navarro County Sheriff's Office executed an animal seizure warrant for 32 head of cattle in the 7000 block of FM 1126 Barry. Deputies located evidence of deceased cattle along with several head of emaciated cattle on the property.

Two suspects were arrested at the scene for a disturbing case of cruelty to animals and the cattle were taken directly to a local veterinary clinic for treatment.
(I have chosen to only post two pics of... the cattle as their condition is too graphic.)

I applaud the work of our deputies who put in numerous hours on this case and worked diligently to remove the cattle from the property, get them evaluated and proper care received as soon as possible.

Sheriff Elmer Tanner
